IAMUSF Program Summary
Objectives of Program
- Establish a trusted, global identification system that includes the entire USF community: students, alumni, faculty, staff, vendors, guests, and contractors.
- Enable applications such as Blackboard, Google Apps, MyUSF, and other to automatically grant access to University resources and revoke access based on the user's identity and role.
- Integrate multiple access mechanism into one set of credentials, minimizing the need for multiple IDs and multiple passwords used on different systems.
- Create federated and single-sign-on systems that will allow cooperation and enhance research opportunities between USF and other Universities around the world.
- Identity Management: obtaining Personal Identifiable Information from multiple sources of data and merging them into one record that identifies the person at USF.
- Access Management: addresses the multiple facets of providing the users access to the resources they need to perform their job.
- Provisioning and De-provisioning: granting, revoking, and tracking access to specific resources in an automated manner.
- On-boarding and Off-boarding: modifying type of access to a resource based on the role a user has within the University.
- Single Authentication Source: providing a redundant, reliable source for authentication based on know standards supported by many applications.
- Single Sign-On Federation: providing the means for diverse systems already in full operation to form a web of trust, allowing the user to move from one trusted application to another without the need to re-authenticate.
